Let`s have fun !

Today`s rainbow is a craft idea on face book, let`s mark this situation as a family and make something to remind us of how we pulled together through this.

the ingredients you need and method are below..

Ingredients for this size - 500g of plain flour 250g salt 250mls of water (add slightly more water if necessary) Bake in oven on lowest heat for 3 hours or until rock hard (took about 4 hours for ours) Instructions- ▶️Mix the flour and salt then add the water ▶️Mix into a dough ▶️Roll out onto flat surface into desired shape about 1-1.5cm thick (remember to sprinkle some flour down to prevent sticking) ▶️Place on a baking tray ▶️Make hand imprints (as deep/clear as possible) ▶️place in the oven on the -lowest heat possible- and leave for 3-4 hours or until completely solid top and bottom. (Alternatively you can leave to air dry for a couple of days in a cool dry place) ▶️Paint with your choice of paints/colours (I used acrylic paints ▶️Seal with any kind of varnish or sealer to preserve it. Varnish, modpodge, PVA and water mix Thank you to everyone who is liking and sharing the post, it is a lovely family keepsake and i encourage everyone to have a go of you have the means to do so! if you don`t have paints then make it and paint it at a later date! Just a few other questions answered... I used acrylic paints (although you can use whatever you have 😊) and you paint it after it has been in the oven Check the bottom is rock solid before you take it out and make sure you have it on the ovens lowest heat or it will burn instead.

Don`t forget the Twinkl parents hub it`s a resource that we use daily at Catton Grove Primary and will be familiar to your children and it`s all free for you at the moment, so go on and have a look.

Welcome to the Twinkl Parents Hub! Made by Teachers, Trusted by Parents.

For those of us who live in the school area, people have asked me to post that our local shops are well stocked and that you don`t need to go to the major supermarkets, stick to those who don`t do online shopping such as Lidls and Aldi and the Co-op and the Express shops and your local One Stop, help these shops to survive in our area by shopping with them. Going online you can find lots of fruit and veg and butchers who will deliver packs if you can store them. It looks another lovely day outside so get some fresh air if you can but stay safe ...
